Alex Rodriguez, came to my golf course back when the Rangers still did Spring Training in Port Charlotte. He had a hot blonde and a brand new BMW 760iL.

Jeb Bush, a couple of times, once in Tallahassee and once in Port Charlotte after Hurricane Charley.

No one else comes to mind at the moment...

Let's see:
Vin Diesel: Was at the Brickyard 400 one year, came down to meet the band (well, more like a bunch of hormone laden girls went up and convinced him to come down) . . . then one of the tuba players hit him in the head with a sousaphone.
Montgomery Genrty: Same situation as Vin Diesel, without the attempted murder-by-sousaphone
Jeff Burton & Greg Biffle (back when they were both driving for roush): Didn't really meet them, but my aunt was at a Nascar thing for the Roush drivers and she pulled her cell phone out and I got a phone call from Jeff Burton. I ended up getting to talk to most of the Roush drivers except for Martin. Funny thing, one of the things he asked me was "So, you hitting the bars tonight?" I was 16 at the time.

Interviewed Darren McCarty last year. Also met Steve Mariucci's sister at the same time (she was heinously drunk). Met our Governor at a press party, but that's pushing the "famous" tag.

President Bush, the Mythbusters, and Ron Jeremy all came to Northern recently, but I didn't exactly get to meet them.

I know I'm going to miss some, but I'll try...

Indiana: 1996 Chicago Bulls, was in the lobby of a hotel in Indianapolis the morning after a game against the Pacers. Mark Leonard, Michael Dorn, Mirina Sirtis (whoa momma), Patrick Stewart & Leonard Nimoy. Met Shaq when he was playing college ball, and all the 93 Boilermakers as I helped with the lighting for the games. G Robb went on to get #1 draft pick and then suck. Hootie & The Blowfish played a club on campus before they were famous, sucked then too. Prof. Theodore Kermit Scott (whom the frog was named after) Mario, Michael, John & Jeff Andretti. Richard & Kyle Petty, Dale Earnhart, Davey Allison, Mark Martin, Ricky Rudd, Rusty Wallace, Darryl Waltrip, Ernie Irvin at a tire test a year or so before the first Brickyard 400... and Jeff Gordon a few times when he was racing sprint cars at a dirt track outside of Indy.

DC: Bush Sr, Clinton, Gen. Schwarzkopf, various senators... (Father was a former Navy Lt. Cmdr, got some perks from that).

NYC: Tim Curry & Susan Sarandon at a RHPS event, l0pht

Florida: Checking into a hotel, needed plate number so I opened the front door to get it, being the kind person I usually am I held the door open as two people were approaching, wasn't until after the tall person I let in left that the hotel manager told me it was Tiny Tim. Mark Lindsay at some New Years bash @ Daytona Beach

NC: All of White Zombie at a few RHPS events, David J. Bradley (came up with ctrl-alt-del) and a few others while I was working at IBM, Jeff Gordon again as a NASCAR driver.

At work: Holyfield (man that ear is noticable), Cecil Fielder (twice, autographed baseball each time), Entire cast of the Sopranos, and Jimmy Spencer.
